I Guess We Missed The Boat by Barry Finlay

I Guess We Missed The Boat by Barry Finlay2 1/2 Stars

This book would make the perfect waiting room book. The chapters are short, don't require much concentration and are mildly entertaining. Not super entertaining but about as entertaining as anything else you might find on a waiting room table.

The book reads like an "around the breakfast table " chat with relatives. Kind of like, "remember that bus trip we took to Chicago and someones stinky armpit was in your face the whole way?" and everyone laughs and passes the box of cereal.

There's nothing earthshaking or memorable about this, its somewhat amusing, somewhat off color and somewhat forgetable. BUT! If you have to sit and wait in a school queue to pick up your kids or visit the doctor, then I think this book may deserve a place in your handbag.

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. Many thanks.
